I'm a complete newcomer to the mainframe world, and have been tasked with writing some procedures to copy data (not just files, but directories... PDS I think its called?) from one mainframe to another. I've researched it a bit, and it seems that FTP is probably the best way to go about it.
I know nothing about what I'm getting into, but he powers that be have told me to "figure it out". No training is available, and Google for once is next to useless.
1. Is ftp the way to go?
2. I've read about REXX scripts, would this be the best way to go?
3. Is it even possible? Our resident mainframe guru says it should be, but he is too busy to spend time on this.
4. Any suggestions on how to start?
5. Any good website(s) that would be of use?
Thanks in advance,
